What are your majors? Environmental studies and economics

Expected graduation: May 2021

What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to enjoy the environment my entire life. Growing up, my family was always outdoor oriented — we would go fishing, camping, and many other outdoor activities.

I have always been fascinated in learning about all aspects of the environment. I enjoy seeing and learning new environments just as much as the Wisconsin environment I have grown up in. Now, I am a senior studying economics and environmental studies, and I hope to combine both as a means of finding practical solutions to pressing environmental issues.

What would you say (or do you say) to other students about CESP and the Nelson Institute? I would tell them that CESP and the Nelson Institute are great ways to meet people with similar academic interest as well as get involved on campus and learn.

Something few people know about you: I like cooking, spending time outdoors, traveling, and most recently with Covid-19, reading and birding.

Something else about you? I’ve been trying to start gardening and just growing plants in general; I’ve had varied success.
